With YouTube videos that have racked up over 300 million views so far, it should come as no surprise that live performances by Kizuna AI are a hot ticket. The Virtual YouTuber’s second birthday event, “A.I. Party! 2019 ~ hello, how r u~” is set to kick off at HY TOWN HALL in Tokyo on June 30, and the ¥9,000 (about $82) tickets sold out immediately after general sale began over the weekend.
Kizuna AI shared a message following the quick sales:
“The tickets for my birthday event to be held on June 30, ‘A.I. Party! 2019 ~ hello, how r u ~,’ have been sold out…! I really appreciate for everyone who applied it and those who tried. On the day, I will do my best to deliver the fun to other places in addition to the main venue! Thank you very much!”
